Description

Cortijo la Suerte, a charming holiday home in the Alpujarras region of Andalucia in southern Spain is situated on the southern slopes of Spanish Sierra Nevada (Alpujarras). The area lies within a Natural Park, which surrounds the National park of the Sierra Nevada.
A 'cortijo' is a small farm, or farmhouse. 'Suerte' means luck, chance, fate or good fortune. It was our good fortune (or perhaps fate) to acquire this rustic farmhouse, and we hope that you will be fortunate enough to visit Cortijo la Suerte.
Cortijo la Suerte provides comfort, simplicity and privacy, and gives our guests an authentic experience of Spanish rural life. It has stunning views, fruit trees, own spring water, about one acre of land.
It is situated on the slopes near the village of Pitres. The nearest neighbours are farmers. The large swimming pool, central heating in the living room and floor heating in the two main bedrooms are luxuries that add to the rural living style. There is no connection to the electrical mains system, the gas mains nor water mains. Electricity is provided by solar cells and batteries in combination with a sophisticated converter that provides 230 Volts AC, so normally you do not realize that you are living in a solar powered house. As a backup there is a modern electrically started silenced 3 KVA Honda generator that runs on propane gas. Because we have ample solar capacity the generator is not needed in summer.
Propane gas is in tanks in a gas shed that complies with all regulations. It is not needed in summer as hot water comes from solar collectors.
Water comes from our own spring on the land and can be beautifully tasting untreated mountain spring water. However sometimes the water flow is low and then we advise not to drink water from our taps, but stick to bottled water or water from the many springs in the villages.
The terrain around the Cortíjo consists of meadows, a garden, and a small orchard. There are cherries, prunes, apples, pears, blackberries, walnuts, mulberries, almonds, pomegranates, kakis, all depending on the season of course. All the fruit is yours to enjoy.
The access road only leads to our property and that of three or four farmhouses around it. It is partly sealed, and for the last few hundred metres it is unsealed.
In this part of Spain the farmers do not live on their land but in the village. Therefore it is absolutely quiet and the only people you will see are the farmers working on their land and hikers enjoying the beautiful nature around us.
